Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We purchased the Ride in Style ticket online which included lunch at North Byron Hotel (across the road from station). We went to hotel for lunch but were told to go to train station to get meal ticket. No one at train station so back to hotel. Staff were super helpful. We ordered the burger off the Ride in Style menu and had to get take away as the train runs every hour in the afternoon. We just ran out of time with the to and for from the station. Got to station and train was in. Conductor gave us our ticket - which included the lunch meal! Driver and conductor were super friendly. Love the different eras in the train carriages.
    Train tickets were reasonable compared to parking in Byron. Free parking at station! Good experience all round despite the mix up with the meal

    The transfer was very comfortable! 1 hour drive from Byron Bay to Gold Coast. The mini bus was super spacious, there was also great air conditioning. Todd even provided all 11 of us with a cold water bottle each.

    The chauffeurs are all very professional and punctual. I was extremely pleased with the communication process from the front office to the drivers, and the cars are immaculate. Will absolutely use this company again.

    I travelled around Byron and to the Coolangatta airport on many GoByron cabs and buses. All the drivers were friendly, helpful and professional.

    What an amazing service and communication with the other way.
    Car arrived 5 minutes prior and super clean.

    The driver was super entertaining to us and our children and they don’t charge any extras for the luxuries children seat.

    Use this to get to and from Byron Bay-Brisbane. Get door to door service and friendly banter from Craig when I was awake. Would definitely recommend this if you fly into the wrong airport for Byron Bay

    We have used this in this service in the past, when it was Gold Coast Shuttle. We had booked 4 months ago and luckily they honored to take us to our resort as apparently it is no longer on the list as an airport transfer. We used the theme park transfers every day and they were late every day. Once we had a phone call advising us but the other days we just waited. Whilst we can understand being late when you get picked up 30 minutes after you are suppose to it is valuable time you are losing at the theme parks. We had the Dreamworld pass and previously it would go Dreamwold last to get off but also last to get back on the bus. This time dreamwold was last to get off and then first to get on, we Dreamwold customers were getting at least 40 minutes a day less at the park than Wet and Wild and Movie World customers. It would be nice if this was reverted back to how it was. Overall it is still great value for money, the drivers were all nice and friendly and their customer service could not be faulted at all. It is a shame it does not include the trams as everyone is pushing the trams over the Bus.

    This is a newly established one hour tour on a "magic" bus - a converted London bus from about 1965 era, but very comfortable, with the top deck covered (essential in summer heat), but with open windows to make sightseeing easy.

    The tour is a "hop on, hop off" tour which lasts one hour and departs regularly from the Byron Visitors Centre in Jonson Street, with 10 scenic stops, including The Pass Beach and Wategos Beach. There is an interesting commentary on the area, provided by a knowledgeable driver, and the tour gives an excellent précis of this scenic area, covering a number of places which the casual visitor is very likely to miss.

    The one hour circuit works well in allowing visitors to spend adequate time at their chosen stop, and the driver is extremely helpful in advising what to see at each of those stops. The bus was also very punctual.
